Letters to Baby K - Week 24


Another week down, another week closer to meeting my handsome little prince, Peyton! Justin is just over the moon that I love the name Peyton. The reason being because it's his favorite football player's name, Peyton Manning. Yeah I'm that woman. The one who let her husband name their first child after a beloved athlete, haha! But in all fairness, I absolutely loved the name anyways so it was win-win for the both of us!

And speaking of daddy-to-be, I never imagined it, but I actually have to tell him to pump the breaks on shopping for our little fella! Haha! He is just so excited and wants to buy all of the cute little clothes and things he sees, but I know babies grow fast and you don't just want to go nuts buying everything that makes you go, "awwww!" I totally didn't expect that from him, but it is so unbelievably adorable to watch him get so excited. I know he's going to be an amazing dad!

Nesting has begun to kick in and I know it's only going to get worse. Luckily, it's not just me feeling it. Justin has picked up the pace with cleaning and is doing so much to help me out lately since he knows I'm not in my tip top cleaning/heavy lifting shape. I'm so grateful to have a husband who wants to actively participate in everything. Decorating, planning, cleaning, preparing, naming, shopping...he pretty much has his hand in everything. Not many woman can say that, so I count myself among the lucky few.

During my next scheduled visit I have to do the dreaded glucose test, awesome. I don't think it's supposed to be too bad, but I haven't heard raving reviews either! Someone please tell me I'm not going to barf choking down this nasty liquid! We'll also get to see Peyton again! I'm hoping I can convince the sonogram lady to flip it over to the 3D scan for juuussttt a few seconds so I can see sweet little Peyton's face! Justin really isn't interested in paying a hundred something bucks to have a 3D scan and in all honesty, neither am I, but I think it would be fun just to see for a second!

At week 24 Peyton is the size of an ear or corn, measuring around 12.5 inches from head to toe and weighs about 1.25 lbs!

  1. The glucose test was no biggie for me. I think I had the fruit punch drink and it really wasn't terrible. As far as GD, I think you really only have to worry about it if you have a family history of diabetes, or are overweight. So it's not as scary as it can be made out to be :) Good luck!
